Accra Hearts of Oak’s Director of football and head coach Kim Grant has blasted the Normalisation Committee following the cancellation of the proposed Special Competition.
He has chided the indecisiveness of the NC, saying their decision tends to affect both players and the Clubs.
Speaking ahead of the teams friendly match against Evergreen FC on Saturday, Grant challenged the NC to take “players welfare” and “financial burden” of the clubs into consideration.
He hinted of asking his players to go on break if there is no certainty for the return of competitive football in the country
“This is a mental thing for the players that again they need to re-energise themselves and pick themselves up again,” he said.
“The top brass need to understand that they just can’t keep ‘stop-starts-stop-starts’ when they want because players also physically and mentally it affect them.
“There is no care about the players welfare so it is important that the People at the top got to understand.
“This is about football players, it’s about supporters and not about them,” he added.
The GFA Normalisation Committee last week cancelled the proposed Special Competition aimed at getting Ghanaian clubs- for the Premier League Clubs and Division One League clubs- busy whilst the Dr Kofi Amoah-led group continues with its core mandate of reforming Ghana football.
It defended it’s action, arguing that the cancellation of the competition had been occasioned by frustrations and impediments put in by the Premier League clubs.
But the Premier League clubs, in a statement, refuted the claim, saying they only wanted the Committee to be transparent with the detailed budget of the $1.2 million.
Hears of oak, in the absence of the Special Competition, which was supposed to have commenced this week, will play Ever Green FC, a team that belongs to former Captain and club Legend Amakwaah Mireku.
